Sacred Heart University Assistant Director of Bands Andy Kolar of Bridgeport was elected president of Connecticut’s Percussive Arts Society (PAS) chapter earlier this month. The goal of PAS is to be a global leader in percussion and drumming by providing unparalleled and interactive resources in percussion education, performance and research.

“With the other officers, I hope to follow the lead of previous administrations while also branching out into some new areas and markets as well,” said Kolar. “The percussion community is truly unique in our connection to every corner of the percussion world, and our chapter is happy to support and promote PAS and everything they have to offer. If you’re a percussionist in Connecticut and you aren’t already a member of PAS, you’re truly missing out on an incredible opportunity to network, perform and learn in your own backyard.”

In addition to year-round promotion of percussion around the state, the Connecticut’s PAS chapter hosts an annual Day of Percussion, which is a day full of clinics, master classes and performances by some of the best performers and ensembles in Connecticut.
